Update 3-7-11: Here's the page with the Cover-It-Live and the Prezi.
Some of the questions/issues we’re likely to address are:
What is social media/networking? How is it different? Why is it important?We’ll use the hashtag #BoardChat
What is the social value of social media/networking?
What are the realities and what are the myths? What are the risks and what are the benefits?
What are the organizational, communication, and learning power of these services?
How can these be used for learning and collaboration, not just echo-chamber and group think?
What is their role in K-12 education? (Note: I’m in high school, so that’s my focus, and I imagine most of the focus in this discussion will be age 13 and up, but thoughts on younger ages are welcome as well.)
What should Board policy look like surrounding social media/networking? Should there be policy? If so, should it be just for this, or should it fall under our current code of conduct and we don’t need a separate policy?
What should our Internet filter policy be for this? What about students that use their phones/own connection to the Internet while at school and therefore aren’t restricted by our filter?
